Forum: audio_podcast Subject: How to use archive.org to host and feed podcasts?

i've been using a really dumb site, podbean.com for a podcast that's been up for several months now, but for their free account they limit your space to 100mb. We have well over 1-2gb of audio recordings already tho, and we've been hosting them here at archive.org and linking to them at the podcast blog, and inserting an embedded player that archive.org provides to play the files.
The problem is that we're on the itunes store and that is how a lot of our subscribers find the podcast, but the podcast feed only contains the files that are hosted at podbean.com, since we keep the newest episodes on podbean and as we run out of space, move older files to archive.org and use the embedded player they provide...

So, on itunes, it only shows the small amount of audio podcasts that we can fit on the podbean site, and it doesn't show all the older episodes that are hosted here on archive.org...

Is there a way to have the podcast feed come from archive.org, INSTEAD of podbean? That way all the episodes (old and new) are shown in the itunes store...

Please help! I'm stuck!

oh, and how exactly DO people use archive.org as a host for their podcasts? i imagine there's a way to feed from here to the podcast, right?

Please email me if u can help or explain how to do this... riseupcomrades(at)riseup(dot)net

Thanks in advance!

By the way, the podcast blog is at http://anotherworldispossible.podbean.com if you need to see what i'm talking about in order to help me out... To see the older episodes and how their linked from archive, click on the second page and you'll see the difference between the files hosted on podbean and the ones hosted from archive.org

If your podcast RSS file is still located in the same location on the internet, all you need to do it edit it and change all the links to reflect the new location (on archive.org).

If you plan on changing the location of your RSS file, you must keep your old RSS in the old location and create a new RSS in the new location. Than you must add a tag to your old RSS file pointing it to the new RSS file. Instructions are here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/specs.html

look under "Changing Your Feed URL"

I realize this is long after the original question but I didn't see any conclusive answers. I started three podcast shows on my website a few months ago and had to create an RSS feed via an XML document in order to list the podcasts on itunes. The itunes help guide was useless and confusing. If anyone needs to learn how to do this I can probably help. Archive.org is a great place to host the media files and the XML docs for the RSS feed.

I think you are misunderstanding what i'm trying to do... so here's a better explanation of my question:


I, along with some friends, have been producing an audio podcast for a few months now and been using www.podbean.com as a hosting site and a podbast blog.
(our podcast is at http://anotherworldispossible.podbean.com )

For the free account we have now (and cannot afford to pay for an account now) podbean.com only allow up to 100mb for storage on their servers, and we have over 24 hours of audio podcasts and a whole bunch of subscribers thru itunes, and other podcast programs.

When we were first thinking of starting up a podcast, I found ourmedia.org and it said that it could be used as a podcast host. I've (since then) been trying to figure out how to transfer our podcast from podbean.com to ourmedia.org in a way that the podcast feed is coming from ourmedia.org instead of podbean.

Right now, we're listed in the itunes podcast directory, and many subscribers use itunes to find and listen to our audio podcasts, however since we're drastically limited in space on podbean.com servers we've been only keeping the newest podcasts on podbean servers, and moving the older files to archive.org and linking them and using their embedded players on the podcast blog...

We need to switch to another host for our podcast that will be able to hold ALL the files at the same time, because as it is now, people who are searching for our podcast on itunes, only see the most recent 5-6 podcasts (the most recent 100mb of files) and do not see the other 22 hours of recordings on different topics.

How can i change this? Is there a way to use ourmedia.org or archive.org as the host for ALL of our audio podcasts and how do i get the files i upload to ourmedia or archive to feed to itunes as our podcast? If this doesn't make sense, please email me back, i've been trying to find out the answer to this question for quite a while, to no avail...

(you can see what i'm talking about if you look at the site, particularly the audio files near the bottom of the page to see the difference in display and how i've been hosting from archive.org and using an embedded player)

I'd appreciate if you took the time to look at this and help me switch over to hosting ALL our files on ourmedia or archive.org and using your site as the podcast feed that goes to itunes, thereby allowing the itunes store to show all the podcasts we've created...

Thank you so much for your time!

I wrote a tutorial on how to do this: http://sketchee.com/blog/2010/2/5/how-to-podcast-for-free-on-archiveorg.html

This uses Wordpress, but I'm looking into using Posterous instead which would let you just email the archive.org link to the blog.

I've been having similar problems

I've been putting up a Podcast of my church's services. Does anyone know how to do it as an RSS. Do I need to generate an rss xml file or can archive.org do that automatically. Is there a program that can generate an RSS file from the (title)_files.xml?

Many Thanks
Cyt

my church needs a new way to make sermons accessible and Archive.org looks like a good option. How did you get this going for your church? Do you have any words of advice? Does your church use a website & rss feed, too?

Same question... I know that you can upload content via archive.org (and the new flash upload button or ftp) or via yourmedia (but that got too unreliable a year or two ago and I gave up and used archive.org direct).

But archive.org lists a number of PODCASTS. How do you get your uploads to appear as a podcast, instead of just random and unconnected uploads in the audio collection?

Thank you for trying to help but Item #224 from the faq addresses how to add multiple items. It does not address how to establish an RSS feed. I realize it may be easier to establish a collection and post each item individually but what we are doing is posting them all as one item (many files, one item) so that they all show up in the the player at once. We're trying to take that one item, and as it's updated have the new track show up in people's RSS feed. What our goal is, is to have an RSS feed that people's RSS readers can automatically look to and will update each time we add a new audio file, without having to manually type in the xml ourselves each time we upload a new file. If anyone has any idea how this might be accomplished I'd really appreciate it.

Many Thanks
Cyt

A Podcast is so much more than a storage place for ypu files. I suggest uting a blog of your choice that provides an rss-feed and then using perhaps feedburner.com to make sure the RSS is a podcastrss (embedded links to mp3-files , itunes tagging etc)

IA is just a place to store your files, It doesn not have the necessary tools for podcast

sorry I don't have the answer for rss, just for filing windsor baptist's uploads. Instead of just being stuck unsorted in opensource audio...

I'm months late, but the best way I've found to do this is to get a blog and use Feedburner for your feed. You can automatically create an iTunes-ready podcast feed through them and it works just fine with iTunes. Right now my friend and I are podcasting using Wordpress, Archive.org, and Feedburner. Works pretty well thus far and it's very easy to set up.

I agree, I use Blogspot in combination with archive (to hold my file). At Blogspot (or Wordpress or other blog pages) there is an option for adding an RSS feed. I think Blogspot is linked with feedburner so it's quite easy once you have the blogspot acct.

because archive.org uses a redirect, it confuses the wordpress auto podcast support...the workaround seems to be to add a custom field for each post called "enclosure" and paste in the full url to the audio file...then wp should make the feed work fine...
